A movie on Rings of Saturn

Sebald's already immortal book Rings of Saturn is being further etched into a visual medium. Grant Gee has made a movie on the book, Patience (After Sebald), which is premiering on January 28th. More on the movie can be seen here.
This picture, taken by Grant Gee, seems like a beautiful introduction to the walking journey Sebald took. I cannot wait to see the film, but getting my hands on the film will be a humongous task - it will certainly not come to India in any legal forms. (Sebald's books hardly find their way here). I will have to find it online, which, something tells me will not happen soon.
My review of this beautiful book is here.
